Reciple for pizza base

Makes 2 medium or 1 very large pizza
Preparation 15 minutes (plus 1 hour standing time)

1 cup warm water
8g sachet dried yeast
1 teaspoon caster sugar
2½ cups plain flour
1 teaspoon salt

1. Combine water, yeast and sugar. Stand in a warm place 10 minutes until mixture is frothy.

2. Sift flour and salt into a large bowl. Blend in yeast mixture to form a soft, sticky dough. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for 5-10 minutes until smooth and elastic.

3. Place dough in a large oiled bowl. Cover with a plastic wrap. Leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour until dough doubles in size. Knock down dough to remove air. Knead into a smooth ball. Continue kneading as required.

4. Roll out dough intp flat base. Then sprinkle on ingredients as desired.

P.S. Sorry forgot to add one detail: Bake pizza for around 20-25 minutes in a preheated 180-190 degrees celcius oven. That should do it. If you've sprinkled cheese over, remember to keep watch to prevent cheese from burning.
